If you don’t have any plans this Friday I would recommend booking yourself a table for brunch at Nahaam. Nahaam is a chic and glitzy venue perfect for a sophisticated Friday brunch, the pool and ocean views only add to the sense of serenity.
The brunch features a selection of live food and beverage stations, offering you all the favorites from their award-winning restaurants.
Being seafood lovers we are thrilled to see the wide variety of fresh seafood available. The ice bar boasts half lobster, Alaskan crab, poached mussels and poached prawns. The selection of ceviche is brilliant, red snapper, tuna and salmon, all divine however the tuna ceviche is our favorite as it has a slight zest which elevates the dish. The octopus carpaccio is exceptional, this is the first time we’ve seen this in Abu Dhabi. Tender slices of octopus are lightly drizzled in vinaigrette and topped with fresh crunchy salad.
Also worth mentioning is the seared yellow fin tuna loin, nori, potato, artichoke and quail eggs, crabmeat salad, pomelo, wild rice with coriander and mango salsa and the seafood terrine all as delectable as the next.
The brunch also features an extensive salad bar, be sure to try the Californian cobb salad steamed mussels, mango, spring onion with tamarind sauce, you won’t be disappointed.
On the terrace you will find the BBQ grilling station and Asian selections. The BBQ grilling station offers everything from succulent jerk marinated BBQ prawns to mouthwatering beef brisket.
The Asian selection varies greatly from dim sum to stir fried delicacies. We are not able to resist the Peking duck, served in either steamed or fried mantou bread and smothered in thick hoisin sauce how could we say no. We take this with a side of brisket and some light salad.
BiCE team is on hand to serve up a selection of fresh pasta, we try a few pieces of the fresh ricotta and spinach ravioli, in true BiCE style the pasta is cooked to perfection.
Adding some theatrics to the brunch is the Tori No Su team, the live whole tuna carving is performed in front of guests adding a few wow’s and ohh’s to the day.
There is an extensive cheese selection along with a fresh fruit section but we head straight for the luscious cakes and pastries. Brunch at Nahaam offers a multitude of guilty pleasures for all taste buds. A wide selection of macrons are on offer amongst chocolate carrot triangle, lavender chocolate cake, raspberry mousse cake, chocolate shooter, blueberry pineapple shooter, chocolate cheesecake, raspberry cheesecake, Oreo cheesecake, plain cheesecake, blueberry truffle, chocolate ginger roulade, crème brûlée, peanut butter cake, white chocolate carrot cake and churros. If you have a sweet tooth you’re in for a treat. We tuck into some deliciously soft, warm churros which we drizzle under one of the large chocolate fountains available.
After a hearty brunch, we make our way to the terrace and listen to the melodies of the band, all to the stunning ocean backdrop.
